Hiya,Following on the theme of the previous 'lockdown listing threads' ( https://www.birdforum.net/threads/joint-bf-lockdown-listing-autumn-2020.396184/ and https://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=388090 ), a joint green listing thread, whether you are in lockdown or not, and makes it easier for all to take part - green birding and patch birding probably the way forward!
Any birds seen or heard from home, by foot or cycle (we'll argue about other options if they crop up). Please post up your sightings and lists (and any other highlights/anecdotes of course). Will set up a googlesheets doc spreadsheet later too and keep a running total for BF members for the year.
Good luck and good birding!
I don't normally post on birdforum but one of my friends told me about this thread. I'm doing an NMT (non-motorised transport) bird list this year, which sounds pretty similar to what you are talking about. I did the same thing with a few others in 2010, in the Vancouver area and decided to do it again this year, where I live now (Middlesbrough, UK). The rules I am going by are that I can count anything I see have journeyed from my house by foot or bike (rowing/ sailing boat would also count). I am allowed to use motorised transport to travel home by (such as taking my bike on the train) but I wouldn't arrange for someone to pick me up in the car (I don't have that option anyway). Also, the Tees Transporter Bridge counts as motorised transport (as it's basically a cable car with very long cables) but I can use it to get home. I'm mostly posting about my NMT-list on my blog but will post here occasionally during the year. Weather's been pretty rotten here so far this year so I'm only up to 31 species so far.
Bye for now
